Linda Sue “Sparky” Parker [06.12.48]
Linda Parker was a schoolmate of Miss Pamela’s at Reseda’s Cleveland High School in the nearby San Fernando Valley. On weekends, the pair of teenaged beauties would often hitchhike from Reseda to the Laurel Canyon Country Store, where they’d hang out in the parking lot, in hopes of meeting young musicians. Linda was a huge fan of all types of music, and, influenced by her outgoing girl friend, Pamela, heartedly embraced the new sounds emanating from the hills of Laurel Canyon.
Nicknamed “Sparky”, the petite co-ed also loved to dance, especially the new liberating ‘free form’ style of her new friends, Vito & Szou Paulekas. In a Rolling Stone article (Feb. 15, 1969) about the GTO’s, Miss Sparky is described as “small and dark and sexy”.
